W.W. is an easy-going thief who makes a living holding up gas stations at their drive-up windows. The Dixie Dancekings are a country band who are looking for their big break. When W.W. hijacks the band's car, he tries to get them to help him with his next bank job, but the group resists until they find out how much money is involved. The relationship becomes mutually beneficial when the Dancekings help W.W. to finance their break into show business, and W.W. grows to like the band and uses his charm to help them on their way.

"Back in 1957, sweet-talking W.W. lived in a '55 Olds, loved bubble gum, Errol Flynn, country music, fried chicken, robbing filling stations, and a girl named Dixie. Not necessarily in that order."

"Big Bad Burt. After he sticks you up, you'll be sorry to see him go."

Review: "Reynolds moves through the movie with his usual ease, relaxed and ingratiating and flashing a con man's smile. He's an engaging actor, especially when he has an attractive actress to work with..." - Roger Ebert
